Take a look at the results of this car-to-car crash test, on 20 year different models…
People are twice as likely to die in a crash, if the car they’re traveling in, was built before 2000.
The average age of cars in New Zealand is more than 14 years. Transport Agency data shows cars built before 2000, which represents nearly 40% of all passenger cars and SUVs on New Zealand roads, are involved in 57% of fatalities. Cars produced between 2010 and 2015, which make up 17% of the fleet, were involved in 10% of fatalities.
The test conducted by independent vehicle safety advocate ANCAP.
